Attaching files to documents

You may want to attach files directly to documents when, for example, your site is set up to list files attached to documents on a page. If you want to upload larger files, such as videos, to the system, using media libraries are usually a better choice.

An advantage of document attachments is that you can attach files related to a document directly to the document. This means that they also stay with the document when you are moving the document elsewhere.

To attach a file to a document

  1. Open the Pages application. 
  2. Navigate to the document to which you want to attach a file.
  3. Switch to the Properties -> Attachments tab.


     
  4. Click on New attachment. A dialog window opens.
  5. Choose the file that you want to attach to the document.
  6. Click on Open.

The system uploads the file to the document.
